Terry Frost, Green Below, 2003, acrylic paint and collage on canvas
To mark the occasion of Sir Terry Frost's centenary, this exhibition celebrates the life and work of this leading modern painter. The show brings together a selection of the artist's most significant paintings, collages and sculpture from public and private collections across the UK with key works from Frost's St Ives period and the formative time he spent in Leeds. This exhibition takes a fresh perspective on his practice over six decades and demonstrates his enduring interest in colour, landscape and abstraction.
"Leeds had such a significant influence on my father's early artistic development, it is the perfect place to launch this exhibition in his centenary year. It will be great to see such a breadth of Dad's work presented here with a fresh new dynamic approach." Anthony Frost
The exhibition opens at Leeds Art Gallery and will then tour to Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange in Cornwall from 10 October 2015 - 10 January 2016.
